A velocity microphone is a sensor whose electric output depends on the velocity of the air particles that form a sound wave . Examples are a hot-wire microphone and a ribbon microphone (bi-directional).
Velocity-sensitive microphones also respond much more to wind noise than pressure sensitive microphones (omnis). You get heavy bass tip-up or proximity effect if the sound source is close to the microphone. Cheers ebs

What is a microphone?

a transducer that converts sound to electrical signals

What does a microphone do?

It converts sound into an electrical signal. A microphone is a device that makes your voice louder.

What is a velocity?

Velocity is the time rate of change of displacement of an object. Velocity is the distance travelled in unit time in a stated direction. It is a vector quantity since it gives

What is the difference between the velocity operated and pressure operated microphones?

Know your microphones - what is the difference between pressure, pressure gradient, and velocity microphones? David Mellor | November 30, -0001 Microphones work on the pri

How do you get velocity?

velocity is speed plus a direction. velocity can be expressed mathematically as V=t/d. velocity=distance divided by time.

What is an velocity?

Velocity is the measure of increasing and decreasing speed. For example... on a velocity graph, if the object being measured is gradually getting faster the line will go up. I

What is the velocity?

Velocity is a speed with a direction (e.g. 20 miles per hour North). your example is an average velocity. velocity is displacement over elapsed time. it is speed. i know this

What does the microphone do?

A microphone is a transducer - meaning it converts sound in a physical space into electrical energy displayed by a waveform. A speaker does the opposite: It converts electric

What can a microphone do?

A microphone takes sounds and turns them into electrical pulses  that are then passed down a cable. The speaker receives the  impulses and turns them back into a sound that
